Pat Robertson warns Dover, PA

“If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city. And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin..."

Dover's school board members who supported intelligent design were voted out of office in Tuesday's elections.

Thomas Frank (author of What's the Matter with Kansas) was a featured speaker and an award recipient. Some notable excerpts from his speech (courtesy of Salter's column):

“You vote to stop abortion and you receive a rollback in the capital gains taxes..."

"It's like the French Revolution in reverse: workers come storming down the street screaming, ‘More aristocracy!'”

“With a little more effort, I think they may repeal the entire 20th Century.”.

Do you think Roe v. Wade will last? Or is Robertson on the winning side?

I don't know. If Alito is appointed, this current court may whittle it away. If so, the decision will end up going back to the states, which will leave us with a patchwork of laws ranging from complete prohibition to a full right to choose.

Hmmm. (ponders)

Given some of the current restrictions alreday on the books and the relutance (fear) of many ob/gyns to perform said procedure, sounds like the status quo maintained.

(sighs)
